PLEASE NOTE: West Hatch Animal Centre is undergoing essential maintenance works over the coming weeks which will temporarily alter the way people can view our animals.

From MONDAY 14th OCTOBER to FRIDAY 18th OCTOBER our main reception will be closed, but we will still be arranging viewing and collections by appointment.

All available animals are on our Find a Pet page. If you would like to book an appointment to view any of these, please ring us on 0300 123 0747 or email whdomcen@rspca.org.uk with a contact number we can reach you on.

Viewing of available cats will remain by appointment only until FRIDAY 25th OCTOBER. We apologise for any inconvenience.


Here at the RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre, most of our animals have been rescued from neglect and bad treatment by their previous owners. 

We look after dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and many other types of small domestic animals - at any one time we could be caring for over 150 animals.We spend weeks, sometimes months, rehabilitating them and preparing them for a new life and a second chance.

In 2018 we rehomed 136 dogs and 194 cats. Our small animal block rehomed 32 rabbits and 162 other companion animals. That is a total of 524 animals in one year! We also microchipped 215 animals, neutered 297, vaccinated 471 and performed 178 operations.

It costs the RSPCA over £2000  a day to run the West Hatch Animal Centre. The RSPCA relies entirely on kind donations from people like you.

The RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre takes in animals from RSPCA Inspectors only. The demand for spaces for the animals they bring to us is ever increasing and we are therefore unable to accept unwanted pets or stray animals from members of the public. We are able to provide information on centres that can re-home animals for the public on request.
